: The Royal Tenenbaums, 2001Runway equivalent: Lacoste.

: Moonrise Kingdom, 2012Runway equivalent: Emilia Wickstead. The designer joined the long list of others who cited Wes Anderson as inspiration, and we couldn't help but notice the similarities between her tweed, pale pink belted coat and Suzy's caped runaway outfit from Moonrise Kingdom.How to wear it in real life: Instead of seeking out matching separates (which can skew too sweet IRL), pair a belted blush blazer with white culottes, which is a cool play on Suzy's knee-high white socks.

: The Grand Budapest Hotel, 2014Runway equivalent: Dries Van Noten.

: Rushmore, 1998Runway equivalent: Gucci.

: Fantastic Mr. Fox, 2009Runway equivalent: Derek Lam. The designer made a major play for the '70s for his fall collection, sending out layers saturated in rustic hues.
